EMI Music brings artists and fans together by driving action and creating value wherever music is experienced.

EMI traces its history back to the very beginnings of recorded sound and music as one of our original companies was founded by the inventor of the gramophone, Emile Berliner.

Since then EMI has always been at the forefront of technology and change. EMI scientists invented stereo recording and were closely involved in the development of magnetic tape. They were also behind the birth of electrical television and radar.

Given our heritage of innovation, when digital music began to take off in the 1990s, EMI was well placed to respond to the new trends. EMI Music’s first websites went live in 1993 and 1994 and in 1998 EMI streamed the first complete album over the internet, Mezzanine by Massive Attack. The following year EMI was the first company to release a digital album download, David Bowie’s …Hours. EMI also launched the first internet video single in 2001. In 2007 EMI became the first major music company to make its music available without digital rights management (DRM) software.

Today EMI Music has agreements with hundreds of digital partners to distribute our music across the globe, covering a huge variety of digital music business models and ideas.
